Combine the history and exciting buzz from the capital city of Portugal with the gorgeous beaches and rich culture of Tenerife and La Gomera in the Canary Islands - all in one trip! This itinerary includes the highlights of the cosmopolitan city of Lisbon, plus the chance to explore the undiscovered beauty of the Canary Islands. Don’t look any further, this is the perfect trip!
Upon arrival in Lisbon, you will meet your driver and head to your boutique hotel in the city center. Once you are settled, grab your Hop-on-Hop-off passes and start exploring! These passes are valid throughout your initial stay in Lisbon and allow you access to the hop-on-hop-off bus, the local trams, and a boat to/from Bélem.
After breakfast, continue your tour of Lisbon with your included transportation passes. We recommend a tram, followed by a walk up to São Jorge Castel to get a great view of the city, then a boat ride to Bélem to visit the Jerónimos Monastery and the Tower of Belém. While there, don’t forget to check out the famous Pasteis de Nata pastries!
Today you’ll be picked up from your hotel for your transfer to the airport. A short non-stop flight will take you to the largest of the Canary Islands, the beautiful island of Tenerife! When you arrive in Tenerife, you’ll be met by your driver who will take you to your hotel in Costa Adeje. Check-in and enjoy the rest of the day and evening poolside or along the beach promenade.
Enjoy a day of leisure before your days of exploring Tenerife. Lounge by the pool or soak up the sun on the beautiful, golden-sand beach. Or walk the boardwalk and find a cafe for some people-watching.
After breakfast, enjoy a leisurely morning to yourself; relax at your hotel or explore the town. In the afternoon, you'll visit Las Cañadas National Park, home to Mt. Teide. This park is characterized by its unique, lunar landscape and beautiful plant life. Once in the park, pass the Chinyero volcano (site of the last major volcanic eruption in Tenerife in 1909) and stop at Roques de Garcia, where you can admire the view of Mt. Teide from 3,718 meters high. If the weather is good, you'll have the option to take the cable car to the summit of the volcano. Later, you'll enjoy the beautiful sunset overlooking the other Canary Islands and can stop to take memorable photos at a few of Mt. Teide’s stunning vistas.
After breakfast, board the ferry for your visit to La Gomera, an island of hidden beauty. Explore the island in chauffeur-driven jeeps, enjoying the open air and panoramic views. During your day on the island, discover Garajonay National Park and the ancient rain forest, visit small and tranquil villages, sample traditional Gomeran cuisine for lunch, and learn about the fascinating whistling language that is found only on this island. You will also have time to explore San Sebastian, the island's capital city that was once visited by Christopher Columbus on his way to discover the new world. At the end of the day, board the ferry to return to Tenerife.
Today you’ll be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the airport for your non-stop flight back to Lisbon. Spend one more night in this amazing city and check out anything you missed at the beginning of your trip.
